I like your paraphonic presets a lot, you took the best of this machine in the ambiant dept!
Is there any way that you sell those presets? I'm intersted.

Just hit the paraphonic button and start turning knobs, moving sliders, and clicking buttons. It's not hard to do. Frankly, the paraphonic aspect of any mono synth is lackluster to me. Paraphonic patches are OK to make noises on a youtube video, but there's little musical value to them. Please don't challenge me.

I will ;D

The filter in a synth is analogous to the resonant body of an acoustic instrument. Most polyphonic instruments out there (e.g. guitar and piano) has a single resonant body that is excited by several oscillators (strings). Using paraphony in a synth can give you that same feeling of a "cohesive" polyphonic instrument.

I love me a bit of paraphony, and the video in the OP is rather nice with great "musical value" IMO! :)

We all win - we have so many wonderful synths, doing all sorts of things!
